Chinese Drywall Inspection

 

Drywall was imported from China during the real estate boom from 2004 - 2008. The defective drywall arrived at nearly two dozen ports around the country with seven of them in Florida, and the others include New York, Texas, New Orleans and California. Usually drywall comes from within the U.S., however due to a shortage during the construction boom, many builders imported drywall from China. Knauf Plasterboard Tianjin Co. Ltd. of China, a subsidiary of German-based manufacturer Knauf, manufactured the drywall.

 

There is evidence that the off gassing of Hydrogen Sulfide from the Chinese drywall causes corrosion of metal building products and copper components in home appliances. There are varying degrees of toxic compounds depending on the manufacturer.

Homes may contain different amounts of drywall. The drywall could have been used in the whole house or just one room.

 

Signs your home may have the defective Chinese drywall:

  • Unpleasant odor emitting from walls resembling burned matches
  • Wiring that has corroded and/or turned black
  • Piping that has turned black or needs replacing
  • Silver jewelry that has turned black
  • Air-conditioning system components that needs replacing
  • Electrical problems
  • Respiratory discomfort and other problems
  • Eye irritations, nose bleeds and headaches

 

Our inspectors check for the physical evidence that the contaminated drywall is in the home and a report with pictures is provided.

 

They will check the following:

  • All outlets in every room
  • A/C Coil
  • Plumbing Fixtures
  • Mirrors
  • Name of drywall (if possible)
  • Odor (may not always be present)

 

Procedure for Homebuyers:

  • The inspector will check for the possibility of Chinese drywall when the inspection begins.
  • If no evidence is detected, a complete home inspection is performed.
  • If evidence of the Chinese drywall is identified at the beginning of the home inspection:

1.    The inspector will communicate to realtor and homebuyer that they evidence has been found.

2.    The homebuyer will decide to proceed with a complete home inspection or to cancel this inspection.

3.    If the homebuyer cancels the complete home inspection, the inspection will then become a “Chinese Drywall” Inspection and the inspection cost is reduced to $195.00 for single family homes.

4.    A report with pictures is provided to the homebuyer as evidence and documentation.
(Cancellation fees for ancillary inspection/services may apply)
